    I have an NEC VT440 LCD projector and I need to ceiling mount it. There is an NEC V40CM part (ceiling mount) but is £180.

    Is there a generic mount anyone can recommend (with links to the product if poss)?

    I'm looking at: http://av-sales.com/projectors/html/vogels_universal_supports.html which seems ok. Anyone experienced this product?

    Thanks
    Pete.

    Thanks,

    I need a mount that gets the projector as close to the ceiling as possible, and these seem a bit long. I've dropped them an email to see if they can custom make.

    Off thread I know...

    dslpete - aren't your Kef Crestas somewhat outclassed by the rest of your kit?!!!!!

    Virus Killer - they are somewhat, but even the guys in the dealership were amazed at how well a cheapo set of speakers could perform with the Meridian.

    I'm actually awaiting delivery, and over time, I'll upgrade the speakers to DSP Actives. But for now, the cash has well and truly run out!

    All of LMP's mounts are custom made.

    And they are the best looking and well made bit of kit you are likely to see. Bar none. :)

    I second that - I bored many friends by saying 'Look at the machining on this mount' before I actually got the thing installed :D

    If you dont thread your cables through the mount then the mount shaft can be as short as you want. I got the 10cm one which will be the shortest if you do intend threading cables through it.

    Another recommendation for LMP-pc.co.uk

    Excellent service, friendly, and amazing quality product for the price. They are all custom made so you can specify whatever mount length you want.
